Black licorice tea is not only delicious but it has wonderful health benefits as well. It is a well-known fact that licorice root has often been used for gastrointestinal problems. Many people who suffer from heartburn or ulcers use licorice to help speed stomach lining repair. Not only does licorice help restore gastrointestinal balance but it is also used in case of food poisoning. Other people choose black licorice tea because of its anti-inflammatory properties. It has also been proven to help boost your immune system and therefore if you have an opportunity to purchase black licorice rooibos tea, do so.

Information: Three cheers for the Dutch. The Dutch have given the world wooden shoes, tulips, windmills and salty black licorice. Yes, salty licorice. If you ask for licorice in Amsterdam you won’t be handed a piece of the sweet red variety we grew up with here in North America. Dutch licorice is actually a derivative of Finnish licorice, known as Salmiakki, which gets its name from the Latin word for ammonium chloride, sal ammoniac, the variety of salt that gives the black confection its distinctive salty flavor. The Dutch variety is a little sweeter than the Finnish, however, thanks to the addition of aniseed. The resulting candy has a complex salty-sweet flavor and depending on the ratio of ingredients ranges in profile from mild to extra strong. Our Master Taster, being the good Dutchman that he is, knew he had to create a tea to capture the unique flavor of the Old Country. He decided to base the blend on a Cederberg district Rooibos from South Africa, which imparts an herbaceous character reminiscent of licorice root. The mellow character of Rooibos also layers exceptionally well with the aniseed and natural flavorings that round out the blend. The resulting cup is fantastic – sweet, slightly bitter and hinting of spice. Try it hot or poured over a tall glass of ice. Prost! (That’s cheers in Dutch!)

    I bought this Black Licorice Rooibos Tea for my wife after finding a sample at work and bringing it home for her to try. She loved it! The local stores that carry this brand rarely have this specific variety offered. And when I could find it, it was extremely expensive (at least in my opinion).

    Dry, the smell is amazing. Its so licoricey, with no rooibos smell at all either. Steeped up, the aroma of this one is overwhelming in a good way. At the time I was making this, I was also making three other teas, and this is the only one I could smell steeping without leaning in to each of the cups; and I can still smell the licorice from the strained leaves now that Im standing in the kitchen again, cooking.

    The rooibos was super well masked, so antirooibos but pro licorice people this could be a good blend for you! The whole time drinking this, I kept thinking it would be amazing as a latte too! Mmm!

    Todays cup seems slightly sweeter than usual not that cloying back of the throat sweetness of licorice root, just sweet, which shifts the color of this to a slightly more purple, darker hue, from the usual greycornflowerblue taste.

    This definitely had a forward, rich black jelly bean flavor to it incredibly one dimensional with no depth, but deeply satisfying for what it was. The rooibos was well masked as well. I adore black jelly beans theyre the first flavor I eat out of a bag, so I adored this brew.

    The licorice is very nice, a little more of a softer flavor when paired with this coconut milk and I can appreciate that. Its different. Since this one usually comes off very bold and mono flavored the decrease in licorice intensity and lovely mellow undertones are perfect.

    The flavor is solid: its basically a simple but rich licorice note with just a hint of the rooibos base underneath. Im drinking it alongside my latenight supper.

    My husband and I started drinking this tea because of the purported health benefits. And we have noticed a slight tingle and increased of energy and better digestion with the consumption of 2 cups a day. The taste is mild and pleasant and does not require any additives or sweeteners. I will definitely be purchasing these again.

    This is a really good tea, mild and smooth. It does not scream rooibos to me as it is not super spicy and aromatic. I was not sure Id like it at all when I first got it due to the strong aroma of licorice.

    The flavor by itself is dry, woody, and earthy very cleansing to the palate. With a touch of honey or sugar, though, it ends up very enjoyable, especially with a good book.

    The aftertaste reminds me of my childhood, when I used to go to the bank with my mom and I would steal a small pile of envelopes to take home and lick shut. What Im getting at is that the aftertaste tastes like envelope glue. And I like that.

    I love a good licorice tea, so I bought this one, despite its rather bland scent. The first sip was kind of a disappointment, it was kind of like watered down licorice, but not too bad. Then the fennel kicked me in the taste buds and there was a swirl of delicious flavors!

    I like it! I was a bit worried before trying it that the licorice would be overpowering, and I dont find it to be, although it is the dominant taste. Granted, I expect it to taste like licorice so maybe to someone else it might be strong. I dont know.

    It feels like a warm blanket for your senses, and just reminds me of older days when Id come back inside from a day of playing outside, or, later, when I would come home from high school half frozen stiff from the walk outside. Its a solitude kind of tea, for nostalgic little moments, and its fantastic with a touch of honey.

    First taste when it hits your tongue is also very woody, but in a pleasant way. Aftertaste is much the same with a touch of olive oil? Something that makes my brain think of butter or olive oil, but my taste buds are still shouting wood!
